Celebrate Hope!


Join NTSA & changemakers across the nation as we share hope to bring awareness to the issue of human trafficking this upcoming January!

We want everyone across the nation to be aware of the dramatic increase in the number of women, children, and men being trafficked each day right here in the U.S. Each person can make a difference by committing to join NTSA throughout January as we celebrate hope and share that celebration with survivors who have fought valiantly to overcome their past and move to a future that is bright. We need everyone to show that hope is ever present – even during the darkest of times. 

Get Involved!

Individuals & Businesses

Join us on January 11, 2023, National Human Trafficking Awareness Day, to share your 11 minutes of silence or 11 minutes of prayer for victims and survivors of human trafficking and exploitation. By doing so, you will be joining a community of people across the nation who believe strongly in the power of collective action to fight against this injustice.


We believe that when the Church moves, it brings transformation! Speak with your church leaders about joining our efforts. All we ask is that you commit to sharing your prayers one Sunday in January to focus on the issue of trafficking. Please contact ghaines@shelteredalliance.org to discuss how your group can get involved & we will send you free resources to help plan!

Sign up to celebrate hope with us this January & we’ll add you to our tree!
